muah ha hah ha! I love photos that show the modern world as a confab of almost diametrical opposites.
I am using that as my wallpaper until something more fun comes along. thanks for posting it.

It’s an amusing picture, and quite a comment on Eastern Europe and the Balkans. However, having lived for some time in Romania, I wonder whether it really was taken there. Collar harness is almost unknown in Romania, where the Hungarian-stype breastcollar harness is almost universal. (I suppose that a Romanian might have bought a collar abroad, or been given one by a foreigner.) Also, Romania has just shortsightedly banned horses on main roads and in towns, so I doubt whether the police (usually all too quick to harrass the peasants) would have allowed a cart anywhere near a McDonald’s (whose Romanian outlets are all urban). I’d be tempted to guess that the photo may have been taken in the Ukraine. However, the photographer presumably knows where he or she took the picture. It will be interesting to learn more.

I live in Wensleydale and the other week we couldn’t get anywhere because the country roads were blocked up with gypsy caravans on their way to Appleby Horse Fair. Although the brightly coloured carriages were beautiful, I couldn’t help getting a little bit exasperated at how the guys were walking alongside the horses. Walking pace doesn’t get anyone anywhere very quickly. However, it is cool when you don’t need a registration plate.

Horses and carts can currently be seen on most Romanian roads

What an interesting blog! I am glad that i ran across it. A fellow down the road from us was featured in the paper as he often rides his horse to town, hitching it at the back of the store. We used to ride our horses to the “root beer stand”, but that was many moons ago.

McDonald’s is everywhere!! The picture might have been staged to show the color contrasts between new and bright and old and drab.

For horse lovers, I find some saddle pads made of wool wonderful, just come here to have a look at, kieffer, Germany DT are here too.

love the topic, I had fun reading it coz I’m a horse lover too but just a beginner one so right now I just keep on collection information that would be helpful for me in my new love.

Somebody should send this one to Mcdonald’s. Might be the beginning of a great commercial!!

that’s beautiful – i remember when i got my first horse in the San Francisco Bay Area and realized it was legal to ride on the streets. Made getting to certain trail heads so easy (-:
Now i’m a farrier for 20 years – have a 100% success ratio, not one lame horse due to the methods of shoeing i use.
Everyone keep riding – keeps you healthy

I love it! Near my home I used to see two girls take their horses through the drive-thru at Dairy Queen. I even saw a man on horseback leading a pack horse in the middle of the city!

This is awesome…love it…But now I think its only fair that the horse eat as well…and how about this? I thought they were great, such a brilliant idea. They’re called “The Better Bucket”…it’s about time something like this was made…. Check out the short video clip at

Let me know if anyone has tried them and what you think!

I think having a horse and buggy is the way to go. We may see much more of these types of pictures as our economy changes. We have a few and it is good to know we will always have some help around the farm if you can’t get gas. Yha horse power!

Here in the south of France we are seeing horses in the vineyards more and more often – a very welcome sight – though not that often on the roads yet…
